Keep reading to find out what the culinary expert has to say about life as a newlywed and what he would pick as his last meal on Earth!
What advice would you give people who are trying to lead a healthier lifestyle?
Pick your food wisely and exercise any way you want. Exercise doesn’t mean you have to go to a gym; 20 minutes of raising your heart level–you can go up and down the stairs for a while.
How would you describe your diet in one word?
What’s the healthiest thing you’ve eaten all week?
I’m on an 85 day avocado kick right now so I eat avocado every day.
What’s the least healthy thing you’ve eaten this week?
What would you want your last meal on Earth to be?
Roast chicken and mashed potatoes.
Do you have a favorite episode of Restaurant: Impossible?
Every one I do. Every week is so different and I get so intense and so immersed in the family story it becomes me. I’ve cried three times in 50 episodes.
How are you enjoying life as a newlywed?
Newlywed life is awesome. Gayle is here and she has her own job and she’s on the road just as much as I am. She comes with me or I go with her. When you find somebody that you want to spend the rest of your life with you work out together, you eat together, you drink together, you sleep together and everything else that goes with that it’s really important. If I have a stable home life, it allows me to do what I do. Did I have to get married? No, I wanted to get married I think it’s a great institution but you’ve got to find the right one.
